Acrolein is a highly electrophilic alpha, beta-unsaturated aldehyde to which humans are exposed in many situations and has been implicated in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease. A galloyl dimer prorobinetinidin from Acacia mearnsii De Wild, robinetinidol-(4beta-->8)-epigallocatechin 3-O-gallate (REO), has antioxidant properties and could protect brain against acrolein-induced oxidative damage. In this study, the molecular basis of acrolein-induced cytotoxicity in human… CONTINUE READING
